Earl Little Part of One of the Most Memorable Browns Road Wins

2. Nov. 14, 1999 -- With the clock running in Pittsburgh, Chris Palmer bypasses a timeout and rushes the field goal unit on the field. Except Phil Dawson thought a timeout was going to be called, so he’s standing behind the bench practicing with the net that kickers use. Safety Earl Little runs over and tells Dawson to get on the field. Dawson scrambles as the field goal team lines up frantically. His game-winning kick is en route to the goalpost as time expires, and cuts through a serious gale on the way. The Browns beat Pittsburgh in their first season back. The next day, Little is asked if anyone noticed that Dawson was not on the field. His memorable response: “Nobody but Earl Little.” Cleveland 16, Pittsburgh 15.
